Origin/meaning

Dark blue and scarlet are the colors traditionally used by Personnel Services. The mace denotes authority and readiness. The mace-head is based on the single star sculpture of the San Jacinto Memorial and represents the State of Texas, home of the 149th. The quill signifies the mission of providing services to personnel of the U.S. Army and indicates administrative excellence. The division of the field, suggesting a lightning flash, symbolizes speedy response to personnel needs and mission requirements. Silver (white) denotes integrity and with scarlet and dark blue represents the United States. The Crest is that for Regiments and Separate Battalions of the Texas Army National Guard.

The Coat of Arms was approved on 16 September 1997.
